Marjorie “Margie” Fithian was last seen by her uncle, who on or about June 23, 1975, dropped her off at a bus depot in downtown Denver. She was going to catch a bus back to Greeley the following day with her 18-month-old son.
Fithian's body was discovered the following day on June 24, 1975, on the side of a dirt road in rural Weld County, near Roggen. She was shot to death before her body and her son were dumped on the side of the road. Her son, who was unharmed, was found on the side of the road with his mother, holding her hand.
Witnesses said a light yellow or tan midsized two door car was in the area about the time investigators think Fithian's body was dumped. Three suspects were identified, including Robert Davis, Vern Hudson and Larry Hernandez. They allegedly picked up the victim from the parking lot of the Picadilly Restaurant in Denver.
There are several other persons of interest in the case.
